Snack #146 - Pop Corners Cheesy Jalapeño
These compressed rice cake looking chips are apparently "popped corn chips" of the Popchips variety (which I think is a popped potato chip). I'm still not entirely sure I understand this whole "popping" thing, but I think it's supposed to be healthier or something. Also, the popping here seems to have made a very crunchy chip, which I like. These reminded me of the white cheddar rice cakes I used to get really excited about as a little kid (I grew up in a healthy house...). They sort of taste like a vaguely less fake bag of cheesy popcorn, but after a few bite the jalapeño heat starts to come threw. Really though, the flavor is dominated by the fake cheese powder taste. And even then, it's kind of bland.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 2/10
Bottom Line: eat a rice cake
